Introduzione

After a couple of thousands clicks the Anywhere MX Mouse develops a phantom double click. This is due to a grove that develops on the inside of the button. It can be fixed with a piece of tape.

  1. The front screws are underneath the front gliders. The can be removed with a butterknive or Plastic Opening Tool. The gliders have three layers, be careful not to seperate them.

  4. After the four screws are removed, the top and the bottom part can be easily taken apart. In the top part the grove that was made by the click-sensor should be cleary visible. This causes the phantom double clicks.

    This is made a TOTAL difference in my mouse….THANKS!

    Thanks for this information, it resolves the issue. I did not add the piece of tape, but instead filed the plastic so the groove was gone. There is enough play in the button to accommodate the additional motion needed to activate the switch and there is no chance the tape will come off in the future. Should be good for another 100k miles, though your mileage may vary…:)

second time for me. So thanks twice !

I cut a couple of tiny pieces of stainless shim and glued them in place of the tape. I cut these from the internals of a failed inkjet printer to prolong the life of the repair.

Had to put three layers of tape on it, but now it works as great as all the years before. Thank you very much!

Put two layers of tape on mine - this tip worked like a charm! very grateful for the advice - glad I don’t have to buy a brand new $80 mouse now!

Thank you for this!! It worked very well! The mouse is great, it’s a shame it comes with this glitch though…

your solution is great; however i did not need to dismantle the mouse to apply the fix. i simply and delicately pulled the mouse button up and out of its socket. after bracing the button by wedging a pencil between the mouse body and button i applied three small electrical tape pieces to the button groove. finally i pressed the button back into its socket.
